After a few weeks without Once Upon a Time, we finally get back to the “who the hell is The Stranger, aka August Booth” storyline. We kick the episode off with August in bed having some sort of a leg spasm, and he twitches so hard he falls out of bed. Alas, that doesn’t knock him out bad enough, so he staggers over to place a call to someone (we never do find out who) and says that the plans need to move faster (again, we still have no idea by the end what the “plans” are).
He ends up meeting up with Henry in hopes they can get Emma to believe that they are all fairy tale characters faster and to get a welcome home gift for Mary Margaret at Mr. Gold’s. Henry walks in and provides a distraction so that August can sneak into Mr. Gold’s backroom to look for something. Too bad he isn’t as stealthy as he thought he was, because Gold catches him. August makes some excuse about thinking that he was in the front of the store and not the back, but Gold is on to him.
